One thing that I have found over my years as a school counselor is that things pop up when you least expect them to. Just when you are not expecting the floods to pour they do. So, it has always worked out well for me to have a disclosure sign displayed in a prominent location just in case I forget to tell them before they spill everything. I have found that it helps to build rapport as well. Students feel like what they are telling me is happening professionally and not for gossip. Having that sign somehow emphasizes that fact.
I printed off two of these on card stock and laminated them so that you could see the sign front and back when hanging in a window. I am also a Command hook addict and use the clear backed hooks to hang this on the glass on my door.
